Anyone ever thought of wood grain for the sides of the center console?

I think that would be over-doing it a bit on the woodgrain. Where did you get your set? I have one from BD-Trims I think they were called. I just finally got the last pieces I needed about 2 weeks ago. I'll post some pics of it completed when I get a camera.

Yours looks good though. I like the Riviera emblem in the middle down there.

Oh nice deal, whats your mileage? I paid $200 just for the dash kit you have but for my 98 hah.

I think it would be because it looks pretty good now. Wouldn't hurt to try it out though. Someone has to be the first to do things to see how they will work out or else we wouldnt have this board here right now. wink

If you still feel adventurous, There ae some wood grain contact paper availible at Wal-mart of Target that would make 'wrapping' that area a breeze. It's up to you to determine wether or not the quality if right for you.

I had my eye on the brished Alumnium contact wich is a higher grade, thicker and more durable. I was toying with the idea of using that to customize my dash in the areas where you have wood.

I can assure you, the quality won't be there. Contact paper doesn't like to adhere to anything that isn't perfectly smooth and flat. It also doesn't like heat or moisture, two things you see a lot in automobile interiors.
